Take free online courses from inspiring professors!
What do you want to learn today?
iversity.org is a platform for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). MOOCs offer unprecedented opportunities for students and professors alike. We believe that open courses can make a difference by enabling students from all over the world to take courses from professors all over the world. Conversely open courses enable professors to extend their reach by teaching tens of thousands of students worldwide.
Access to education can both vastly improve people’s lives and bring about real change to communities as a whole. This is why our courses are free to everyone. This is also why our course offerings are constantly expanding and cover a range of subjects that include medicine, computer science, economics, physics, law, design and philosophy.
We work in close cooperation with instructors, universities and knowledge-based companies to build high-quality courses that are engaging, interactive and fun. Our aim is not to replace the university but to empower academics. Likewise, being based in Europe, we are able to take advantage of the European Credit Transfer System. Our partnered institutions have the opportunity to offer exams that award ECTS credits. We are the only MOOC platform to have courses that offer ECTS credits and working to expand this possibility further.
With MOOCs, education becomes accessible to everyone, anywhere on the globe.
We believe in the transformative power of online education. So do you? Take a look at our current job offers.
Meet our Team
We want to support the universities on their way into the digital age. We have lived and studied in many places, attending some of the world’s finest academic institutions. Like our course catalogue, we embody intellectual diversity. Graduates of philosophy, physics and political science work alongside business and IT-specialists. Clearly, there are many open questions regarding the MOOC phenomenon. But where others see challenges, we see opportunities. We hope you will join us on our quest to find answers that work for faculty, students and society at large.
